Looking for Spice? We changed our name to Tempo in October 2018.

What we do

We co-design and deliver Time Credits programmes in partnership with local authorities, health, social care and housing providers, schools, businesses and voluntary sector organisations.

The Time Credits model works simply: people earn Time Credits for time contributed to their community or service. These Time Credits can then be spent on accessing activity across our national network, such as local attractions, training courses or leisure, or gifted to others..

Watch this video, produced as part of University of Cambridge research, to see a typical volunteer’s journey with Time Credits.
